Let’s aim to be better,
Last 2016, Bali exceeds the foreign tourist arrival target of 4.4 millions with the total number of 4.485.137 (data from Central Statistics Agency of Bali). Thus, Arief Yahya, Minister of Tourism does not hesitate when targeting 6 millions foreign visitors coming to Bali as part of his 15 millions international arrivals target in Indonesia in 2017. But we are positive this can happen as Bali was recently picked as the most popular yearend destination for December 1st – February 28th 2017 by TripAdvisor.
Meanwhile, we have to do something to stabilize the transport issue in Bali. The past week we hear a lot of news about the feud between Bali Drivers Alliance with the online-based transport application, such as Uber, Grab and Gojek. Yesterday they had a peaceful rally in front of the governor’s office in Denpasar as a reminder for the government to take action. Will there be any solution?
On another note, we have set aside all the Chinese New Year events and hotel package deals in our website under the event page. Do check it out. We have The Ritz-Carlton Spa offering a special Chinese Remedy Ritual, or The Laguna Bali who served an Emperor Dinner Feast inspired by forgotten recipe and delicacies. We have it all here.
